The Acrobats of China in Branson, Missouri
is a family-friendly show full of entertainment featuring the talented, acrobatic artists of China. This show amazed me from the very beginning, as these performers defy gravity, pushing their skills to new heights and generally do the impossible with their bodies.
A few of the highlights of the 2 hours Acrobats of China show were the two girls in the first 30 minutes who lock arms and maneuver each other sideways, overhead, and even into a human plank position. These girls and their ability to transcend the normal movement of human bodies was truly amazing. Another spectacular stunt featured the males of the group jumping through hoops, literally! They would run, jump, flip, or somersault into a stand of hoops, and at one point the hoop was five circles high! The way these performers gracefully swooped through these small circles, and at such a height, was unbelievable. The sash climbing segment had to be my most favorite, as it was the most “hold your breath” trick of the show. As the girl walks on stage, she holds on to sashes hanging from the ceiling, and seamlessly climbs the sash, tying it around her feet all the while, and in turn, brings the show to new heights!Branson’s Acrobats of China
features many other acrobatic tricks, including juggling a 35 pound jug, a magic trick, chair balancing and rope walking on a swinging rope.
This is a great show for families with children, as the kids in the audience were completely enthralled by the entertainers. Overall, though, it is a good choice for any Branson visitor looking to be amazed by the human body!;
